1925 Dramatic and beautiful photograph of Babe Ruth from the New York Yankees as he perched on the top step of the Yankees dugout, leaning on his bat, and posed for a photographer from the George Grantham Bain photo service. A high grade work of art, this has exceptional use of light and shadows that almost seems to lift Babe off the image and draws you in like few baseball photographs we have ever seen! One of the more artistic images of the baseball great that has ever been taken, this is a nearly perfect condition specimen that has been encapsulated by PSA as a Type 1 as well. This is the only example of this photograph we know of in the hobby.
